My daughters have been attending Momentum Tutoring for almost three years and have excelled in their school work ever since. My oldest daughter struggled in math in 1st & 2nd grade and now in 3rd grade gets 100% on test. We also enjoy the summer camps, which really help keep things fresh in their minds before the new school year starts. I highly recomend this program.

Sincerly,
Norma Maynard

Momentum has help my son stay on track with his school work. As a single mom, it is hard for him to wait until I return from work to get homework help. Momentum has good, caring staff members that are helping my son succeed.

My son has always struggled at school, and I've enrolled him in many tutoring programs, including SDSU, The Learning Center, Kumon, and Dyslexia-specific training. Nothing helped, if felt like I was pouring money down the drain. My son hated it too. But at Momentum Tutoring, my son enjoys learning, he is making measurable progress, and the cost is inexpensive. Ms. Terri is wonderful, and we're very happy with Momentum Tutoring. I would recommend it to anyone.

I have a 16 year old son that attended Momentum Tutoring. He didn't want to go, he tried everything possible to not have to take the time to tutor. I was promised that my son would be matched with a tutor that will work with his needs , and boy I'll tell you "The frown upside down" saying was what I saw in my son. He went in no smile, no confidence and especially no interest. I picked him up 40 minutes later and he could not stop talking about his tutor how much he could relate to his feeling and that he would get him to the level he need to be at . Every time I picked up my son there was just more and more confidence glowing on on his face! I Thank Momentum and their tutors because now I have a child that understands the importance of learning and the change in him was dramatic. I am a single mom of 3 I wouldn't have a clue on how to show my kid's what they are learning now in school ,But I know that my daughter who is 14 will tutor there and only there,because they truly care about your child's education and I know she will be matched with someone that will give her that confidence she needs. Thank You Momentum and to the Tutor's

My Grandson was struggling academically as he entered the middle of 2nd grade. We enrolled him in Momentum Tutoring 4 days a week and saw immediate improvement. His organizational skills were the first area of improvemnt, which helped the rest of his areas. His reading was the next area to improve followed by math. His tutors were great and my Grandson loved going to tutoring. He also went to summer school and loved every single day. I can't say enough positive things about the tutors and Terri B. How she knows each of the kids and their needs at Momentum so well but she does. She is very kind, knowledgeable and focused. My Grandson will be continuing with Momentum in the fall.

Where do I even start? First of all, Momentum Tutoring not only helps students with their studies in school, but this organization also fuels their self esteem and willingly gives it's all to help each individual student. I got involved with Momentum after volunteering for a month during the summer school and then was hired on as a tutor and it has been such a great experience. Right from the start I knew there was no other place that I wanted to work at because Momentum was perfect for me. The environment there really helps students feel comfortable and everyone who works there becomes good friends with the students. You can really tell that everyone just wants all the other people around them to succeed as well, and so each person helps others to the best of their ability. I would recommend Momentum Tutoring for every student, whether they just need that little extra boost to do homework and get a better grade or they need one on one instruction to be able to understand clearly how to do certain assignments.

My children benefited in the "after school homework help" due to our chaotic household (with dealing with cancer illness, having my inlaws living with us and having 4 little dogs constantly barking, and no quiet space for them to study). Both my kids raised their grades, felt confident going to class because they had completed their assignments, and it was less stress in the evening for me. Thank you Momentum Tutoring for providing a service to allow us to enjoy our time together as a family. :)

We started with Momentum mid-way through second grade. My daughter was below reading level and was getting discouraged by her grades. Though she enjoyed going, we wanted to get her help before she turned away from school completely. We paired up with Marianne twice a week and by the end of the school year, she was at grade level. She would come home from tutoring chatting animatedly about her time and how wonderful Marianne was (and still is). We couldn't agree more. This year (3rd grade) we discovered my daughter needed glasses and once getting them, her grades have skyrocketed. Now she's reading 4th grade books. Marianne and the staff at Momentum gave my daughter the confidence to learn and push through the trouble before we even knew what the trouble was. Thank you! Even though she doesn't "need" tutoring anymore, the confidence and excitement she shows every Thursday going is priceless and worth every penny!

Another year with Momentum Tutoring continiously supporting my son with homework and his studies in 4th grade, Thanks to Terri, Malorie and everyone at Momentum that makes that special effort every day to help individuals in strengthening their skills in order to better themselves. Momentum offers the ability for students to become more in tune with certain subjects that they may struggle with. This organization has made a huge difference for my son every school year for the last four years as he is now an A and B student/ The feeling of a group effort in accomplishing better grades and a feeling of self worth is exactly what Momentum stands for! We will count on Momentum in assisting us next year as well! Thanks Momentum for making the difference. Jennifer

My son has been attending Momentum Tutoring since the 1st grade. Colin is now a third grader and has made leaps and bounds with regard to his reading and math skills. We are so fortunate and thankful to have the support from Momentum which allows Colin to have the individual one on one time to allow him more thorough training in areas that require more attention than is allotted in the classroom. Thank you for making the difference for us Momentum!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My son has become a better reader and a better student because of Momentum Tutoring!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

There are new changes coming to Momentum. There is going to be a Summer School/Camp Program to allow kids to have the best of both worlds! We are looking forward to it this summer!

I have had great experiences with Momentum Tutoring two years in a row! When my son was in 8th grade, there was an hour after school before I got off work to pick him up. Momentum had tutoring sessions available on school campus, and a senior in high school not only helped my son with his homework but also got him planning his high school career in order to get into a college he was interested in. The tutor went on to Cal Poly. The following year, as a Freshman in high school, my son fell behind in his honors algebra course. Momentum paired him up with a college student as his tutor and after one month he made a huge improvement. My son started tutoring with a D- in his algebra class and now has a high C. His algebra tutor makes the chore of homework & studying fun, and my son's whole attitude towards his math class has greatly improved. Thank you!!
